    Assembly Line

    The assembly line cut the amount of time it took to assemble a Model T from 12.5 hours to just 93 minutes. The assembly line also changed the way people worked and lived, accelerating the shift from rural areas to cities, and increasing the number of people doing resistive, low-skilled jobs.

    Assembly Line
    Ransom Olds created and patented the assembly line in 1901. It allowed car manufacturing to company’s to increase output by 500% in one year. He built his first car as early as 1887 and he later built his first gasoline-powered car in 1896. After his creation of the Assembly Line being credited, he later used it to build the first mass-produced automobile called the Oldsmobile Curved Dash and this began in 1901.

    Photography that changed Child Labor Laws
    In 1908, a man named Lewis Hine became a photographer for the National Child Labor Committee and he used his camera as a tool for social reform and this led to child labor laws to change. Hines was always threatened with violence by factory police and former and because of this Hines was forced to disguise himself to enter the mills, mines, and factories he had to disguise as a fire inspector, postcard vendor, bible salesman or even an industrial photographer making a record of factory machinery

    Photography that Changed Child Labor Laws

    While the reformer had an ally in President Theodore Roosevelt, politicians with ties to industry voted against any long-term solutions to problems such as child labor.If the Keating-Owen Act passed, it would have freed children from child labor only in industries that engaged in interstate commerce.In 1919,President Woodrow Wilson, approved and signed into law of “Tax on Employment of Child Labor”, and it placed a ten percent tax on net profits of businesses that employed children under age.
  • The Introduction to Workers Pay Change

    The Introduction to Workers Pay Change
    Henry Ford was known for his many genius ideas but this idea changed the pay for all workers. Ford’s profit sharing plan was that any worker over the age of 22 was eligible to receive five dollars a day for an eight hour work day. The reasoning was that the plan would help the company retain workers and lower costs and to boost productivity and he was correct. Between the years 1914-1916, Ford’s plan doubled the company’s profit.

    The Introduction to Worker’s Pay Change

    Woodrow Wilson approved the creation of a federal trade commission to act as a watchdog over business. A child labor bill and a worker’s compensation act below. Wilson agreed to limit the workday of interstate railroad workers to 8 hours. He signed a Federal Farm Loan Act to ease the pains of life on the farm.
  • Unified Assembly Line

    Unified Assembly Line
    The major step of the assembly line was the creation of Unified Assembly Line by the Buick Motor Company. It turned around over 1300 cars per day and it was built and designed by C.B. Durham, who wanted to obtain the most speed and economy in the assembly operation, while still maintaining quality standards. They were able to cut costs significantly by creating a system of elaborate and intricately designed conveyors in one unified line. A steady stream of finished and tested valve-head engine.

    Unified Assembly Line

    The division’s history has been exciting from the beginning. Buick recovered from near-bankruptcy in 1904 to become the No. 1 producer of automobiles in 1908- surpassing the combined production of Ford and Cadillac, its closest competitors. Buick was where the number of major contributors to U.S. auto history first headed an auto-building company.
  • Lean Manufacturing

    Lean Manufacturing
    Toyota Motor corporation developed “Lean Manufacturing”, to improve the flow of production by identifying and eliminating waste. Henry Ford integrated and Toyota change the name into “Just in Time System”. “Training Within Industry”, was a program that made airplanes and during World War ll they were used and after the war, the company died because no one was in need of airplanes. And so this influenced Toyota to look for another production system.

    Lean Manufacturing

    Henry Ford was but one of the revolutionizing forces in manufacturing history, it also took two world wars, and the rise, collapse and phoenix of two countries to bring about the production concepts and standards that we today consider fundamental to manufacturing success.
  • Jet Engines Developed

    Jet Engines Developed
    Hans von Ohain of Germany was the famous designer of the first operational jet engine but the credit also introduced us to Great Britain’s Frank Whittle.Whittle was an English inventor and he began the development of a viable jet engine in 1928, and later Ohain began working independently on it. Several years later in 1939 the turbojet powered Heinkel He 178, the world’s first jet aircraft, made its first flight.
  • First CAD Software Created

    First CAD Software Created
    The beginning of CAD was traced to 1957 where Patrick J. Hanratty developed PRONTO, which is a first commercial numerical-control programming system.Ivan Sutherland MIT’s created SKETCHPAD, which demonstrated the basic principles and feasibility of computer technical drawing. The creation of CAD was to aid the design and tooling of cars by integrating drawing machines, computer control, interactive free-form curves, surface design and 3D milling for manufacturing clay models and masters.
  • The Development and Use of Overall Equipment Effectiveness

    The Development and Use of Overall Equipment Effectiveness
    Overall equipment effectiveness(OEE) is a hierarchy of metrics developed by Seiichi Nakajima in the 1960s to evaluate how effectively a manufacturing operation is utilized. It is based on the Harrington Emerson way of thinking regarding labor efficiency. The results are stated in a generic form which allows comparison between manufacturing units in differing industries.

    The First Video Game Console and the Concept it has impacted for the Future
    The first video game console was merged in the early 1970s by Ralph H. Baer and he devised the concept of playing simple spot-based games on a television screen in 1966. After this the gaming industry gained more customers and it evolved into online gaming and to the better realization of gaming.
  • Industrial Robots Introduced

    Industrial Robots Introduced
    American engineer George Charles Devol created the idea of the industrial robot and brought that idea to life. The introduction to industrial robot in Japan began a little after 1966 after Joseph Frederick Engelberger met Devol and he bought the idea to Japan. the first film that used Artificial Intelligence(AI) to create a fake film of the President Richard Nixon giving an important message about the Apollo 11 mission failing, and leaving Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon to die.

    Patent for RFID Tags Secured
    Charles Walton was the single individual to take credit for all of the technologies advances that lead up to the ultimate development of RFID. An RFID system consists of a tiny radio transponder, a radio receiver and transmitter. Unfortunately for Walton, his latest patent about RFID expire in the mid 1990s. So for future purposes he will not make any money from the billions of RFID tags that will appear in the future.

    The first iPhone is released by Apple
    Steve Job and his team at Apple invented the iPhone. The real story of the idea of the first iPhone was that Jobs was trying to create a really cool phone for the generation. The first iPhone dropped in 2007 and the features were that it had internet capability, an MP3 player and a two megapixel digital camera.

    The Rise of Robotics Use in Manufacturing
    With companies like Rethink Robotics introducing robotics such as Baxter and the ability to combine technology with gestures, a whole new era of automation in manufacturing begins. After the first robotics in 1973 was introduced, robotics has changed how production is completed because robots are able to perform a task repetitively with precision tirelessly. The new manufacturing robots are more productive and use less energy to work, making them more efficient, effective, and minimizing waste.

    3D Printing Taking Hold In Manufacturing
    The earliest 3D printing technologies first became visible in the late 1980s, at which time they are called Rapid Prototyping(RP) technologies. 2013 was a year of significant growth and consolidation. One of the most notable moves was the acquisition of Makerbot by Stratasys.
